OK, this one may not have taken place inside the compound, but it feels like it could be just outside the gates...

Charlie's work on the recent upgrade is fantastic. Sound is clear and bright, which is great because a performance of this quality deserves fantastic sound. Like so much of this era it is really hard to point out singular highlights as just about all of it is amazing. I do really like the Sugaree, China>Rider, Playin, Eyes, WRS...ah, Hell, I really like the whole damn thing.

Mr. Miller, there are no words to express how appreciative I am of your dedication to not only preserving, but also improving on these treasures. We are truly spoiled beyond belief. To quote Garth, "We're not worthy!!"

"Backyard Bliss" would make a great name for a porno.

Wouldn't "Backdoor Bliss" be more fitting?

But I digress...

Ah, a little before your usual "time", eh? In a good way, of course.

What strikes me is the set-list; only in the trivial sense that this was the set list just prior to my "live arrival" with the boys, and the one I would've prefered over what it became in the latter portion of the 70s (hold the posts on 77 being the GREATEST, I know, I know already). What I mean is that from a very personal perspective, the latter 70 jam elements, sans SB-FotM, and a few others, such as Terrapin or even Bl4All, didn't do it for me as much as the prior couple of eras, if that makes sense.

Not to mention I had to wait til 76 for a much different StSt, but that's another rag.

Not meant to be negative, just recognizing that having arrived at the live show stage in 74, then the hiatus, in a way, I was just a few yrs behind in "expectations", and that had a bit to do with my having felt somewhat "let down". Again, all on me...

Somehow your set-list prompted this self-reflection on what might have been part of my problem. ONly got worse when I arrived here and saw what I'd really missed in 68.

Rip Van Hollow it is; like the music, this never stops.

Setup, per usual, free of charge.

Free of charge? Well I certainly hope you realize I will also stiff you on the tip.

definitely dig this one SDH, not the finest of fall '73, but should by no means be overlooked. WRS is one of my favorites...
